Violent IKEA Gnome Ad Upsets British Viewers

Gnome Idea?-)

Nine Kinds 

of Naked

"An Ikea commercial showing a couple at war with garden gnomes has upset British TV audiences, who have sent in dozens of complaints. 
The "Say No To Gnomes" ad shows a couple attempting to clear out old furniture and ornaments from their garden — but facing a revenge attack from a small army of furious-looking gnomes. 
The gnomes eventually lose, but not before viewers are treated to slow-motion shots of their squat ceramic bodies smashing against a fence or under the jet of a garden hose. 
Britain's Advertising Standards Authority said it received nearly 50 complaints that the two-minute ad was "offensive, unsuitable for children, frightening, violent and encouraged emulation and anti-social behaviour", BBC News reports. 
The authority said it was "surprised" by the reaction and had no plans to take any action....
Ikea's UK marketing manager, Peter Wright, said the ad was a "light-hearted" way of showing a family breaking away from "the ultimate embodiment of everything that's tired and dreary about British gardens — the garden gnome"."
Violent gnome ad upsets British viewers  
I'm glad that I broke away from that "tired and dreary" place, too.
Unlike Jack;-)
If they ever make a sequel to The Shining IKEA would be the perfect place to film it.
I could see Jack fitting right into management at that place ... and with pretty much the same results too.

Were These Posts a Premonition of the Boston Bombings?

 I saw that a blogger had read this old post tonight, so I had a re-read to see what I had written -
Countdown to Doom:1981, Episode 21?
The scene of the light aircraft crash
Lismore Airport, March 24
I remember the creepy feeling I had writing this post thinking a much bigger event was coming not too far down the track, and it was somehow related to this plane crash and the runners that got hit by falling tree branches in the 10 km run at St.Lucia in a vicious hail storm.
The Hailstorm that claimed the life
 of Joe Kelly, March 24th, 2013
The Iceman Cometh in March Sync
Fredric March and March Syncs  
It all started with my post about Fredric March and his movies on March 23rd.
March played Death in the movie Death Takes a Holiday, and oddly enough the Boston Marathon was run on a bank holiday.
March also died on April 14th (age 77), so the anniversary of his death would have been the day before the Boston Marathon bombing.
The Titanic would also get hit by an iceberg on April 14th, but wouldn't sink until the morning of April 15th
But tonight, when I Goggled "Iceman+Boston Marathon" I got the trailer to a movie called The Iceman that came out just after the Boston Marathon, plus this article that was written before the Boston Marathon, but after the runner that got hit in the Brisbane storm of March 24th had died from his injury -
Racing to Boston
Steve Martin and Tanya Carter
are competing in the
Boston Marathon on April 15.

Tanya Carter will have some support from above during her inaugural jaunt in the 117th running of the Boston Marathon next Monday. 

The 45-year-old, a graduate of Kelly Road secondary school, was encouraged to pursue qualifying for the historic marathon by former Prince George Y volunteer running coach 
Joe Kelly, who passed away in Australia on April 1 after being injured in a race eight days earlier. 
"He's just a great inspiration to myself and to all of our running friends and triathlon friends and the Iceman group," said Carter. 
"Joe has just been a great person in my life and a great motivator. 
"It's going to take a long time for us to get over him," she added. 
In Boston, Carter will be joined by fellow Prince George runner, and coworker at Ritchie Brothers, Steve Martin. 
Both Carter and Martin qualified for the Boston Marathon at the Kelowna marathon in 2011. 
The marathon in Kelowna was Carter's ninth marathon overall, and the fourth time she had tried to qualify for Boston, having tried twice at the Calgary marathon and once in Sacramento, Calif. 
In Kelowna she ran the 42 kilometre race (26 miles) in three hours, 47 minutes, 56 seconds (3:47.56). 
Martin's qualifying time for Boston was three hours, 23 minutes.
The 23rd of March was when I wrote the first post about Fredric March and Joe Kelly was injured in this race below and later died.
I couldn't help but notice that Joe Kelly (Joke-Kelly?)
died on April 1st (April Fool's Day).

Steve Martin and Tanya Carter and their families are safe at their hotel near Boston

The two Prince George runners completed their race before two explosions at the finish line killed two people and injured dozens at the Boston Marathon on Monday. 
Carter had crossed the finish line about seven minutes before the first explosion happened. 
She said when she turned around all she saw was "a ball of smoke" after what sounded like a cannon. 
Amid the "mass hysteria" Carter worked her way to the family gathering area where husband Kevin, as well as Martin and his wife, were waiting for her."
Steve Martin and Tanya Carter and their families are safe at their hotel near Boston - See more at:
Maybe Joe was running with Tanya, and helped get her to the line 7 minutes faster?
 I also feel the storm warnings pointed to the Moore tornado as well, which was a killer storm killing 24 people and injuring 240 people.
Whole neighborhoods razed by Oklahoma tornado that killed 24
"Disney's Frozen hits theaters in November 2013, and Beyond The Trailer host Grace Randolph gives her review of some of the recently leaked footage!"
Let's hope this isn't indicating something bad for November.
 "What does the S stand for?  Hope!"
Fredric March's last film was The Iceman Cometh,
where he was Harry Hope.
"Greed is good"... Is it?
Life is full of choices ... and not all good, that's for sure.

I saw the above You Tube yesterday on the net and it reminded me of the post I wrote the other day about the spiritual experience of religious shrines and the cinema -
St.Kevin, Hollywood, 42 and Reflection... 
There is a nod to King Kong in the above video too, which reminded me of this bit of synchromysticism -

420 KONG

And of course 420 reminded me of this clip -
420 Bullseye
And this post about 420 -

Football Syncs

The photo of the Spurs programme
Mike Perry commented to me about
The other day I wrote a post about football syncs between myself and Mike Perry and the name Kevin -
Kevin, Walls and Bridges
Mike knowing that I was a Tottenham fan left this comment at the bottom of the post -
"Was looking through some old football programmes, many from my dad and came across Spurs v Newcastle from 1955 - thought you might be interested so scanned it and put it on a post I don't use:"
Looking at the programme I found it odd that there were some famous movie star surnames in both teams that played that day, like Crowe, Cowell, Hopkins, Reynolds and Brooks.

"Hi Mike,
About synchronicity, I found this article, a psychologist's point of view

What do you think, you and your readers about it?"
To which I wrote back -
Here is an article I wrote about Dr. Surprise last year -

and the funny thing is that my team is playing
Russell Crowe's team again in less than 9 minutes ... so I'm off to watch the game on the TV.

Russell Kruger;-)
Now the funny thing is Russell Crowe is a part owner of the 
South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Brendan Cowell  is a mad Sharkie fan, like me -
